Luis Nery: This Time I'll End Yamanaka in The Sixth Round

World Boxing Council bantamweight champion Luis "Pantera" Nery has arrived in Japan to defend his title against the legendary Japanese boxer Shinsuke Yamanaka, in a rematch set to take place on March 1st at the Kokukigan Arena.

Nery surprised the world on August 15 of last year by defeating the local fighter and conquering the WBC world title, in what was supposed to be a Japanese party, since Yamanaka sought to equal the country record for making the most title defenses (13) - which is held by his idol Yoko Gushiken.

Comfortably ensconced in his hotel, the champion all the way from Tijuana commented:

"I am very happy to come to Japan for the second time. Japan is cold, so it`s necessary to make an effort to take good care of myself to lose weight.

"My fight with Shinsuke Yamanaka will be tough, but I will get the victory. I will go into this fight with an aggressive boxing style as I did in my first fight with Shinsuke Yamanaka. I`m fully focused and I predict the fight will end in the sixth round!"

IN OTHER NEWS: Sanigar Events and Queensbury Promotions are proud to announce that former British and Commonwealth Super Welterweight Champion Liam Williams has been added to the huge night of championship boxing at the Ice Arena Wales, Cardiff on April 14th live on S4C.

Liam returns to Wales after seventeen months following massive back to back clashes with domestic rival Liam Smith.

The popular fighter from Clydach Vale will box for the second time at the Ice Arena Wales, last time scoring a TKO against unbeaten Gary Corcoran in arguably the best win of his career. Williams will box in an 8 round contest against an opponent to be named shortly.

In the headline event Ashley Brace, Wales' undefeated female contender will drop down in weight to take on Germany's Xenia Jorneac for the vacant European super-flyweight championship.
